Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

Very nice 5x5

Turns very fast and smooth. Not too expensive.

YJ MGC 5X5 Review from Speed Cube Reviews

I purchased this cube at its normal price, so I had the same expectations as everyone else. This cube preforms very nicely, it doesn't pop randomly when you solve it. For the purpose of high-speed cubing, it's very nice. If you turn extremely aggressively, it might pop a few pieces, but it's very stable overall. Corner cutting is pretty standard, it has a maximum of just past 1 piece, in both reverse and normal corner cutting. The greatest feature of this cube is its magnets. The magnets help to slow down the cube when turning outer layers. In the event of a pop, the magnets would help you to reassemble this cube. It is definitely worth the price, even without a discount code/sale. it's worth it. If you want a basic cube for a lower price, this isn't your go-to, but if you are looking for a very nice and premium feeling cube for a reasonable price, buy it. I would definitely recommend this to be used with DNM 37

Overall, this cube is great if you want a premium feeling 5x5 for a reasonable price, that performs well. If you want a very budget magnetic 5x5, consider something a little cheaper.

First 5x5, never need to buy another

This is my first 5x5 and it's probably the nicest puzzle I own, the quality is awesome and makes me never want to put it down, absolutely no complaints

I am always late in getting this cube. The cube is perfect, but I still prefer my Valk 5 M because it came in stickered. I have many of this cube, but I never use it because it’s stickered.

Great overall cube!

Literally everything about this cube is amazing. When I first took it out of the box, it wasn’t slimy with lube which is always a plus. The turning feels really nice, and the magnets have the perfect strength to snap in place. The only bad experience I had with this cube is that it can lock up pretty easily when doing wide moves. Other than that, this cube is great, and would definitely recommend it!

Yj mgc 5x5

Fantastic cube. Comes a little loose so there is minor popping, but after adjustments and lube it just flies man. Recommend.

Huge upgrade

This cube is great and within a week already lowered my average from ~ 3 minutes to sub 2:15

A great 5x5 option

the 4x4 and higher MGC line is considered one of the best in the market at the time. I can say that it's also my personal favourite, and worth every penny. The puzzles are spectacular off the box and get even better with lube and setup. The shades (black with stickers) look nice and are very easy to distinguish. The only drawback: if you force it too much on loose settings (we are talking 3x3 levels of forcing), it might pop.

Great 5x5 for a great price

This 5x5 is an incredible cube It did require a bit of tensioning to make it pop less, but after that it is incredible and I personally love the speed, continue to get great times and overall it is just a great cube
